Madison Wisconsin Road trip
Updated: Mar 23, 2022
We hit the road on a rainy Friday morning. Michael always follows too close, so driving on rainy days is not my favorite thing. I concentrated on the scenery and tried not to slam on my imaginary brake pedal and slap the dashboard.
I love the lighting on rainy days for black and white pictures.
On the Highway in Dubuque, Iowa. This city looks like a great place to take pictures.
Black dirt and fields prepped for growth.
Through the sunroof on a day with no sun.
Meeting dear friends and preparing to see The Professor of Rock.
Proscenium Arch in The Majestic Theatre.
Looking down the arch from the balcony.
50 songs no breaks full out rock.
We perused several flea markets in Madison. This coffee pot was interesting.
Madison is full of interesting architecture.
Window display at an eyeglass store.
I love old neon signs. I want to do a night shoot in several neighborhoods in Madison.
The colors of the mural and steeple caught my eye.
Waiting on the mail.
This building is now apartments.
The juxtaposition of this brutalist apartment building in this block of Victorian buildings drew me to this shot.
Looking at the Isthmus. Note the Frank Lloyd Wright building on the lower left.
I love old farms that refuse to yield for the city.
Everywhere a sign
Michael pulled into Dubuque, Iowa so that we could scout the area. We decided we will be back as soon as possible to devote more time to documenting the beauty of this city.
Squares and rectangles
The Fenelon Place Elevator was closed for the season. I grabbed this shot from behind the fence.
Reflections and gnomes
This reminded me of the yellow brick road.
This is my favorite road picture. I never know if my timing will work out and capture the shot I saw in my brain. This one is better than what I had planned.
